[color=blue]Morning! I found this pattern on KnitPicks. Has anyone made these? Or something similar. Do you think they would be difficult for a “newbie”? My neice is having her second baby in September I would love to give her something hand made :XX: [/color]
One of my first projects was a pair of booties! Go for it, Stony!
I second that. They look straightforward and what have you got to lose? Those are really cute!
[color=blue]Kelly when you order from KnitPicks is the delivery fairly prompt? I would love to order some stuff today :cheering: (I can tell this is going to be dangerous lol) Thanks! [/color]
I guess I need to read better. You can not just order the pattern/yarn. It is in a book of patterns. Oh, well will search for something similar. Any Ideas? Thanks!
Why not order the book? The baby won’t go away and may need more clothing! (I am such an enabler. :oops: )
well there is that bootie pattern that someone posted on here that i think is ADORABLE but am afraid of cuz i avoid things that require more thought than a seed stitch scarf like the plague. let me see if i can find them cuz they were the first thing that made me think that i could set aside my aversion to patterns!
here it is. it is from our own KnitQueen!
[color=blue]Yup… I was afraid of that lol. A little encouragement and my finger just automatically goes to “add to cart” :rollseyes: I have no will power lol. [/color]
Knitpicks is pretty fast…If you order early today, I bet you’ll have it by the end of the week.
[color=blue] :cheering: I did it… ! I know… it is something simple lol… but my FIRST KnitPicks order… am I excited? mmmmm hmmmm! YUP! :[/color]: :balloons:
lol…i am always putting stuff in my cart there and then not ordering. i would have ordered many times over by now i think if they had the color selection in WOTA as they do in some of the other yarns!
[color=blue]Well I usually like to be able to touch the yarn… I am like that when I buy fabric to quilt too… there is just something about being able to feel it… Strange I know! I almost clicked on the Denise needles… :shock: but I held back! How did I do that? lol [/color]
oooooooh i am the fabric department’s worst enemy…i can’t walk past without touching everything on the outside and if i get sucked in, well then i need to touch it all.
wonder where that comes from…something in childhood i would guess.
You have great will power. I always ‘shop around’ and buy things I don’t really need. When your package comes, you’ll see why it’s so much fun to order on line. Christmas every day. Uh oh, I need to get off this subject. I’m jonesing for a delivery and I have nothing on order.
[color=blue]Yup I am bad… I am now looking all over the internet trying to find a delivery schedule hehehe… hmmmm how long will it take for it to come from Ohio… oh brother I have it bad. (Yay for the internet at work!) :hiding: [/color]
I have to say I LOVE tracking.
the Knitpicks Lace and Diamond bootees calls for? I may or may not order that same pattern, but I’d love to make my next bootee in that color yarn.
[color=blue]Hi Ann :waving: (with no “e” lol) I am hoping that the order comes tomorrow- :cheering: I ordered the book the pattern is in but not yarn that they recommended on the knitpiks site. The color options were not very baby like… and I really liked the color of the bootees shown in the picture. I will probably buy the yarn local, if you are still interested in the color and brand I would be happy to let you know anne . [/color]
